PIPSQC is pleased to share that Children's Hospital Association (CHA) will be hosting a special webinar event, "Nursing at the Forefront of the Battle Against Sepsis," set to take place February 14, 2017 (1:00 PM-2:30 PM EST).


Nurses play a central role on pediatric sepsis response teams, and collaboration between all providers is critical to recognizing sepsis early. Join a special event hosted by CHA and Sepsis Alliance to hear from Carl Flatley, founder of Sepsis Alliance, and the 2016 winners of the Sepsis Alliance "Erin Kay Flatley Pediatric Sepsis Nursing Award."

This is the first event in CHA's 2017
Sepsis Webinar Series. A library of 13 sepsis webinars is also available. Simultaneously, more than 35 children's hospitals are working on a sepsis collaborative: Improving Pediatric Sepsis Outcomes (IPSO). Enrollment re-opens in July.


Carl Flatley, DDS MDS will introduce the "Erin Kay Flatley Pediatric Sepsis Nursing Award" and the 2017 call for applications.

Julie Albright Gottfried, DNP RN CPNP-PC will present her research on improved sepsis recognition and response through inter-professional training for sepsis teams, and explain how inter-professional training was implemented at Golisano Children's Hospital at The University of Rochester Medical Center

Carolyn Nightingale Riker, BSN RN will present on improved outcomes and implementation strategies with a nursing-driven rapid sepsis screening process and sepsis clock in the emergency department at Boston Children's Hospital.


The webinar is open to any pediatric clinician interested in work that's advancing sepsis care. There is no fee to attend.
